Jeezy skipped church yesterday (November 1) but he had a very good reason. The Snowman was out in Atlanta court finally putting to rest a three-year-old lawsuit involving his former manager/business partner who was trying to recoup what he thinks he was owed.

Via TMZ:

Young Jeezy will stay $5 million richer … a jury of his peers just ruled a man claiming to have helped launch the rapper’s career gets nothing.

Jeezy was in an Atlanta courtroom on Friday for his legal battle with Ellerbee Demetrius, a man claiming to be Jeezy’s bff since ’95. Demetrius says he’s the one who helped Jeezy establish himself in the music biz, and in return he said he was owed money from at least 4 of Jeezy’s albums.

As TMZ reported … Jeezy denies cutting ANY music deals with Demetrius, and says they’re far from BFFs.

The jury agreed … case closed.

By the way, Jeezy’s eighth studio album, Church in These Streets drops on November 13.
